What is PC Modding? In Our Podcast Show this week, Winston and Stephen will explain what it is and their experience with customizing computers back in the good old days before RGB!

PC Modding is like car enthusiasts who love to modify and customize their cars. In the early days of PCs, we all had boring-looking beige boxes with no RGB. So, to make things a little more interesting, a bunch of guys decided to make their PCs look totally different from all the rest.

PC Modding isn’t just about the look or design of your case. When enthusiasts decided to overclock their processors to get the extra performance, we started installing larger and more complex cooling systems and a new industry was born.
